Body and Soul

One of the few surviving titles from the groundbreaking African-American filmmaker Oscar Micheaux, Body and Soul (1925) features the  great singer/actor/athlete Paul Robeson in his film debut. Robeson is magnificent in dual roles, as an escaped convict posing as a preacher, and as the currupt preacher's honorable twin brother. The film has been fully restored for the Pioneers of African-American Cinema Collection and features a new original score by DJ Spooky - Paul D. Miller, performed live by Miller and a stellar ensemble of Northwest musicians: guitarist Mike Gamble, pianist Dana Reason, bassist Andre St. James, and drummer Ryan Biesack.
